If u heard Kuzhi paniyaram, the cuisine thats comes immediately to our mind is Chettinad..this is quite a tiffin item in all Chettiyar's Family... this kuzhi paniyaram can be both salty n will like the sweet version, as they ressembles like mini idlies n prefect for breakfast..kuzhi paniyarams r always my fav, but i never prepared them at home coz i didnt bought earlier the kuzhipaniyaram pan...recently i got this pan through my mom n immediately i prepared this delectable dish also the most famous chettinad is the recipe for salty version, coconut chutney goes awesome as side dish for this paniyaram...
